Stretch yourself a bit
You don’t have to look like a model or have the verbal skills of a senator to be a fascinating person.
Everyone you know is fascinating, if only you knew them well enough to see it.
With limited time, you have to do a little more than just be yourself to be the most fascinating person in the room.
You’ll need to stretch yourself a little bit.
Use These Tips And You Can Be The Most Fascinating Person At Your Next Social Gathering
1. Look your best.
Dress average, and people will assume that you’re average. We notice those who dress sharply. A perfect haircut catches our eye. Shine your shoes. Be bold in your clothing choices. Have a unique style.
2. Focus on others.
If you want people to think you’re fascinating, make them believe that you think they’re fascinating. If you can make someone think that they’re the most interesting person in the room, you won’t be forgotten soon.
3. Lead an interesting life.
If your life is interesting, and you’re willing to share it, you’ll be seen as interesting too. Travel, have unique experiences, and pursue interesting hobbies. There aren’t too many people that do much beyond working and watching TV. Not only will you be fascinating to others, but you’ll also enjoy your life a lot more too.
4. Talk about things you’re passionate about.
When you talk about things that interest you, you have an enthusiasm that’s attractive to people. What interests you that you can share with others? Share your enthusiasm with everyone and notice how well people respond to you.
5. Be conﬁdent.
Nervous people aren’t assumed to be interesting. We’re naturally drawn to conﬁdent, charismatic people. Remember, you don’t have to actually be conﬁdent, you just have to appear to be.
The more non-ﬁction you read, the more you know. The more you know, the more opportunities you have to be an interesting person. We like intelligent people that can tell us things we don’t already know. Make a habit of reading and learning something new each day.
7. Maintain some mystery.
It’s easier to be interesting if you don’t reveal every detail about your life all at once. Even the people you see daily at work should wonder a little bit about what you do on the weekends. Keep an air of mystery around your personal life.
8. Be unpredictable.
We’re fascinated by people we can’t predict 100%. Be the person that comes into work and announces that you’re going to Nepal on vacation, or that you spent Saturday at an elephant sanctuary. Maybe you’ll shave your head or get a tattoo. No one knows what you might do.
You can be interesting just by being yourself openly and unapologetically. You’re already a fascinating person. But if you want to be the most interesting person in the room, you’ll have to be a little bolder. Let the world see the real you. Let your crazy side out a little for a change. You’re going to like the way you feel!
